>What is minimalism?Minimalism here involves taking an image and reducing them down to basic colors and removing most features. Most wallpapers will not include shadowing or faces, but this is subjective. >Requesters1) Refrain from posting images with incredibly intricate designs, vague or conflicting colors, or undefined edges, these make minimalizing very difficult.2) If you can, provide the name and/or source for archival purposes.3) Be patient (do not second a request) and make sure to thank the artist!4) Check if your image hasn't already been done before in the booru: http://min.booru.org/ >Artists1) Always upload at least 1080p PNGs, try and post transparents too.2) Look over other people's works! We need good criticism if we want to improve!3) Watermarks/signatures are not highly necessary. >Guides and resources to Making Your Ownhttp://www.deviantart.com/art/Vector-Wallpaper-Tutorial-399883993http://www.deviantart.com/art/Minimalist-Wallpaper-Guide-Inkscape-600729489https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R32XqTRJXnkhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LTQCoFrP4vwhttps://imgur.com/a/YWJrG >SoftwareUse vector drawing: either Inkscape (free) or Illustrator (free if you know what I mean) (don't use raster graphic software, such as Photoshop, GIMP, etc.) Past threads: https://pastebin.com/r9BbL6bCUntaken requests from them: https://imgur.com/a/CqLVq Previous thread: >>2081354
Made this a few days ago.
>>2105563I'll repost since my request hasn't been done yet, if a kind soul has enough time to do it, I would appreciate it :)
Im just gonna repost this from the last thread since it hasn't been done yet, could someone do this?
I made this last night
Reposting request. I know an anon said he was gonna get around to it but we all get busy
>>2105869Can i have the sauce my friend?
>>2105869>minimalist perky nipsMUH
>>2105869What does the original look like?
>>2106015Not the requester, but I think it would look better if background was of different shade (preferably less bright) than Asuka's plugsuit.
Does anyone have a wallpaper with pink background and girl with bandaids on her nipples on the right side of the image?
I may not have the spare time and energy to contribute these days, but I am glad this place has remained fairly active.I'd ask that people post high-res versions of minimalisms without a background here so I can upload them to the booru or do that yourselves, The purpose of it is to be a resource for others to be able to make their own wallpapers, so if >>2106015 >>2105869 >>2105841 and >>2105577 could do that, it would be very much appreciated
>>2106837>>2106870this one's a smaller resolution, I just copied the res that was provided.
>>2106107>>2105939Here is the originalSauce: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/672303050598466056/?lp=true
>>2106837Sure, why not
Requesting, I guess. I'm not sure if I can find a better quality image or if it's even good enough by any means.Resolution can stay either the same or 720x1280/1080x1920.
>>2107061Was working on it but ended up drunk. I'll try again.
>>2107061This was a pain in the fucking ass you'd better enjoy it asshole. It's not even that good but this is what you get. Cunt.
>>2107061>>2107276My bad after triple checking I still forgot something. Here's the updated final one.
Thank you everyone for the apparently quick response.So here's a question based on what I see though - why are most 1920x1080 transparents? if you're using a vector program, you can just select the vector and export that at whatever resolution you want without leaving so much empty space. I don't know about you guys, but I find it easier to import such a transparent, downsize and move it around when making wallpapersalso, if anyone is using photoshop or gimp or any other raster program making these... please don't, for your own sake
>>2107307>So here's a question based on what I see though - why are most 1920x1080 transparents? if you're using a vector program, you can just select the vector and export that at whatever resolution you want without leaving so much empty space. I don't know about you guys, but I find it easier to import such a transparent, downsize and move it around when making wallpapersCan you rephrase that? Or give an example I'm feeling slow rn.
>>2107311Basically, the reason I ask is that with high-res vector transparents such as >>2106859 and all the ones in the booru, I can take them and use only a part for a wallpaper without a loss in quality, such as this image
>>2107890it's not too bad if you split the pieces in what i consider to be a logical order of front to back, as in, first make the parts that are in front of other things, then go from there.in this Yellow was first, with the dark yellow strips on the sleeve combined with a solid block for the cloth, clip it with the sleeve shape as on the right.The second and third shapes done are Green, then Teal (light blue)The only tricky bit was where the scarf and coat meet and shift who is in front on the far left of the image. There i duplicated both the dark blue and purple lines, then cut off the overhang of the purple and cut apart the blue in the place purple crosses over, then combined the two new paths into the purple on the right, extending the dark blue after. Then red as the finger that goes inside the scarf. everything else should be pretty simple.I may have not explained things the best here or gone into enough technical detail, but I hope you understand what I am trying to explain, if not, ask further and I or someone more coherent and less tired will hopefully answer.
just gonna keep this place from falling off too soon
requesting best girl
This place has its lulls and fits of activity, I shall remain to see it at least continue with some old stuff I made when I had free time to do this sort of thing
>>2109880Thanks for keeping it alive. I'm sure you know that interest in this type of thing always ebbs and flows. Hopefully we have a few new people trying.
>>2109984>>2108790Might give it a shot when I have a moment to spare
Requesting minimalist if possible
>>2110127hot fuckin damnseconding thisnice tits aside, I think if done right, this would look really amazingFor archival/ booru purposes, friend, what character is that and what series is she from?
I will post some cute KON backgrounds
>>2105869>>2106874I'm a bit late, but can you post a high res transparent of just Honolulu? If you have the original render, something like the large sizes found on the arhive. Like this, for example: So I can adjust it and use it for my phone background.Also for boruu archive purposes.
>>2110325>>2110332>>2110333>>2110334Anon, this thread isn't for this kind of wallpapers. You would check a K-on thread for those.

>>2112781>>2112723not him but i at least made them a png, im to lazy right now to fine the epi and take a screenshot, but i at least split em up, idk which they want, but it doesnt really matter since itll be a minimalist anyways and no one would do the mouth
Requesting some Taimanin AsagiI need my titty ninjas on my pc

My first time doing anything in Inkscape so it's a bit rough.
Here is the source
Posting a random old paper, mostly because I wanted to ask>>2113569Is this from anything in particular, or just cool art?
>>2113584It's Lucky Chloe, character from Tekken 7.

>>2113530Sorry, I just said that because I'm literally okay with anything as long as it's Taimanin Asagi related
>>2113777Glad you like it, here is the fixed version. Got the order of layers wrong on the left leg.
>>2113568>>2113883Can we get a high res transparent for boruu/archival purposes?
>>2114242never mind, just checked the boruu
Here's some OC from a long time ago, enjoy
>>2113811na its cool, im just trying to help you out, cuz if you post a pic rather than saying anything i feel there is a better chance of it getting picked up, your good homie
i'm not sure if this minimalist style fits the thread but i would like to request someone make something similar to this but of RIkka from Chuunibyou
>>2114977here is another example
>>2114978and a third example. That's all i have
>>2114977>>2114978>>2114980Or honestly just to post more similar to this

Requesting this Simon drawing and any background that fits with the theme of the anime.
>>2115661>>2115662>>2113234>>2113233>>2113232>>2112723This break down was pretty awesome to see. Way to go. If I may make a request. I was hoping for a Chibi Marchesa, with emphasis on the Crown, smug expression and those shoulder pads, but seeing this I'd be interesting in just what you would do with it.
>>2116860Whaddya call it? THE ARISTOCRATS!
>>2110311You sneaky motherfucker.
sorry to disappoint, just a bump
I'm trying to help someone on /k/ with a patch. Trying to use her head as teh center of a patchJust need the basic 3 colors like the other Mahoro in the booru
>>2118834heres the basic mockup he made and about what he's looking for
>>2118834here you go
>>2118896thanks my dude
>>2117647here you go
>>2117647>>2118904and without the pattern
>>2118896Not the anon who asked, but thank you.Really could use more patches that use the minimalist anime style.
Here's something I made for myself and I thought the thread might appreciate it.Critique welcome.
>>2119027Original for reference.
I'd like to request this homura if anyone has the timeThanks in advance
May I request this one done of saber? I understand there are already a few of Saber on the boruu, but none in here iconic pose with her sword.If Carionto or any other kind anon is up to it, I'd also like to request it be as simplified as possible while still maintaining key visual characteristics. So avoiding the patterns on her armor and sword, and just having a generalized gold or steel color, of her sword and armor, etc.To be 100% transparent, I want to attempt to have a variant of this rin patch >>2118981made, but with saber. In order to do so, I need to have something to pitch the original seller of that rin patch, Woodpatch, with. As that rin patch is embroidered, fine detail at 3" diameter is pretty much impossible- unlike flatter woven patches(see shinobu patch right next to it) but wovens lose the pop that the thicker threads of embroidered patches provided. Anyways, the image needs to be as simple as possible, very similar in lack of detail as the rin you see on that patch, to accomplish this. The real challenge I'm struggling with is how to simplify it as much as rin, but still be able to tell the distinct armor, sword, head, etc. If this task is too mundane or too much of a request, I apologize. Thank you for your time in considering it.
>>2120123The transparent is too big, it's like 7mb sorry about that
>>2120125Can you at least put it onto the boruu?
>>2120156I will when I get the time, I've got studies to deal with and midterms are just around the bend
>>2120455Honestly that stuff is way more important, so you take care of that. But if you find the time afterwards, it would be much appreciated.
The Demon Lord is Cute
is it dumb to add artist's name onto tags on the booru?
>>2122802More information can't hurt, sure. But the vast majority haven't been tagged with that in mind, so it's not going to help much, either.
Got inspired by a little contest over on DA, made this, here's the transparent: https://min.booru.org/index.php?page=post&s=view&id=1317also, recorded myself making it: https://youtu.be/XymmWNU0Qnwas in, the whole process, nearly 7 hours, be warned, I talk, quite slowly, and barely explain anything, so it's not exactly meant to be helpful to anyone, but if you've ever wondered what the process looks like, including deliberations and a sort of audible thought process, then here it is
>>2122872Makes sense.Also warms my heart knowing someone saved my only creation at some point, and uploaded it, one that I did years ago before the booru. Truly inspired me into getting into this again.
First one is a looong time, picked a random request one. The og pic also had a really odd pinky finger, which I didn't see until after getting there, not sure what to do about it.
>>2123018Now I'm curious which one it was.I was the guy who started the zip archive of saving every high res transparent I could find, and categorizing them. Did that for a couple of years before Carionto coordinated with me on a naming scheme, and then created the boruu. My job, while appreciated, became redundant. I'm glad that my efforts in some way contributed to the preservation of your earlier work- it makes it all the more fulfilling that my efforts back then were meaningful to some people.
>>2123043It was a Black Rock Shooter one that I made out of my own wallpaper at the time, and it was my first project and spent a lot of hours working on it, and it was lost when I formatted my pc at some point.
Requesting this, thank you!
>>2119046Sorry if it looks pretty lazy, first time making something like this so I didn't want to get too ambitious
>>2124234Thank you for your work, it looks good.Would it be possible to get the transparent as well?
Does anyone have some minimalist wallpapers featuring riichi mahjong? Thanks in advance.
>>2127796I think yes.
Kirara Bernstein from GJ-bu.I asked an unknown artist to clip her out of a screenshot, and I just stuck it onto a black bg.
Sorry for being lazy, but could anyone make a patchlike version like so of this pose from Chiaki?I'd really love it
I’m keeping this thread from dying by requesting a minimalist sora

>>2131279I think it is generic original cat girl in style of time. I recall original having thick horizontal striped shirt.
>>2132477damn, was hoping there was an anime i could watch for her
>>2133004I am not an expert so I could be wrong.Might also be only the ears and tail were added.
some one have this wallpaper?
>>2133257And the original?
This is not an anime image so I am reluctant to even upload it, but I respect the technique. It is a John Wick image. I vectorized it so the figure is to my liking, but ideally I want the background detail eliminated, leaving only the figure, his shadow, and that medium blue that immediately surrounds him as a flat background.>Original and my initial edit https://imgur.com/a/bUWC36B
>>2133805john wick is cool, non-anime stuff has been done here before.anyway, kinda like this?
>>2133842Try that with Spike.
>>2133842Thanks. You inspired me to try again.
>>2133977That isn't Spike.
Can someone make this minimal, please?
>>2109880>tfw 4Chan hasn't worked on your computer since one of those school shootings scandals and even though I now have plenty of time along with much better internet speeds to get back into my wallpaper collecting hobby, I only have a mobile to access this board now.Well, I am obviously not going to post a face and waste pictures, but it's pained and sad that I am not smart enough to know of any possible workarounds.
>>2135072oh well thanks
How about converting this?Is it still minimum if the background keeps its texture?
Does anyone have one of Major Motoko Kusanagi?
>>2135513Several. What will you trade?

>>2127273Thanks again for making one of my military waifu, Carionto.Sticker mule is currently running a promo: 10 3" stickers for $1 USDhttps://www.stickermule.com/p/93e60c0aSo I got some of her. This is the 3" sticker next to a standard figma for scale.
Can someone edit this, if possible with the pupils and the eyebrows/crease.I also got a folder of HR transparents back from 2016, I could upload some pictures if you want.
>>2133004>>2133128the grill is misaki nakahara from nhk ni youkoso
>>2136870The one I posted absolutely is, however as I remember>>2131279was not. Inspired to or ripped off perhaps.
Requesting. It's already pretty simple but it's tough finding the source in high quality
>>2137386Source is DBZ.
>>2137389Thanks, but I'm requesting the image to be in higher quality
>>2137386here you go,a high-res transparent to put on any background/aspect ratio of choice
>>2131313tried and failed, fuck
>>2137598posting it anyway, then fuck it
>>2137598>>2137599What if you did only one color for the head?
>>2137615I think that works reasonably well.
>>2137646good to hear
>>2137679A little white shape looked down at me...said "I know where you ought to be"
>>2137163no way the one i posted was based off misaki, not even close to the same face structure or hair
>>2138257Yeah but as a tribute to her could be possible but I do not think it was.
>>2105930Ok anon I found this a while back
>>2138743Who is that?>>2105930
>>2107292Great, love it
like these are good and all but wheres the .svg files being stored?
>>2140584Thank you so much Anon!
>>2140613typically they are held private due to assholes in the past presenting the work as their own, so you gotta ask for the .svg files, you may get different responses based on the individual, some might post a link here, others may ask you to contact them through some more private means
>>2140584Creepy. I like it!
Is anyone still here who hasn't had a request taken? Dont want to work on a super old request only to find out the anon has given up and left.>>2140619Np. Glad you liked it. Sorry it's a bit rough, I'm out of practice.
Did everyone leave?
>>2141698No, it has been this slow in the past, then picked up for a while, now it's in a lull againJust so it's not all text, here's an old one over a fancy background
Requesting Rin from Kemurikusa, plz
>>2131279That's the main character from Loveless, and is a boy.
>>2141947No thanks. Try again.
>>2142071god damnitoh wellthanks for the info and sauce, he's still cute either way
>>2141752Might as well include the face on that one.
Requesting this, but if you could make the color of the bottle label the actual color of the Pocari logo that'd be great. Thanks in advance.
Requesting this pic of my waifu, Akeno Himejima. Can you please do it on a black background?
>>2138833Pretty sure that's the armor worn in Shin Megani Tensei: Strange Journey. It's a dungeon crawling video game and part of the franchise Persona spun out of.
>>2142786Strange is a good word for it.
Guess who finally got free time again?!
>>2143285The transparent is too large...
>>2143286you know you can always export it at a smaller resalso >>2143170i feel you could have filled in the hair as its just a curve, and the spears would be just a copy-paste job so it wouldnt look so odd cut off like that
>>2130819You did good, anon. I like it a lot.
>>2143373Isn't it not minimalist with stars?
>>2143409what counts as such is both in the hand of the creator and the eye of the beholderfor example, I'd say the lines in the Joan 2 posts up is less minimal than those stars
>>2143432I put the lines on Joan in order to define different parts of her body.
>>2143432>>2143434The lines on Joan are physical. The stars are a pattern.If others like them it is their choice. I object.
>>2110336thank you anonjust finished this masta piece and was looking for a minilm
i am positive I've seen a minimalist version of this but i can't seem to find it so.. requesting this. thanks in advance.
Requesting just Homura in this if the image isn't too small
>>2141947I would suggest reverse image searching for the best/highest resolution version, that makes working on these easierThis applies to everyone posting here, not just youAlso, did a version with the eyes, cuz I like doing them: https://min.booru.org/index.php?page=post&s=view&id=1331

I really hate requesting because I know you anons are busy with other's requests but I've determined I need this minimalized at any cost
>>2143929Well now it definitely existsAnd so does a version with the face https://min.booru.org/index.php?page=post&s=view&id=1335
>>2143214>>2143213I feel like she's missing a heel due to perspective... maybe it's just me that feels this way though

>>2144990The glove/tooth doesn't work in min form.
requesting this, thanks!
>>2145075And lose the glasses.
>>2145266if that's a request, for whoever decides to work on it, i found the original high-res vector, as well as sauce
>>2145320yeah, i know there's a wallpaper version already, but it looked kinda weird so i thought someone could make a better one of the sauce png
>>2145333here we typically transform the given image in a vector program, so it's just a lot easier to work off of the high-res version, then just downscale the output

>>2106018This is wonderful
how does one do these?? Is there a tutorial somewhere?
>>2147128Ignore me, I'm literally retarded.
>>2147128>>2147129Alright, 8 hours of work later I've made my very first one.. I know it's not perfect, I've got a lot to learn but I'm happy with my first attempt!
>>2147158Looks good, well doneBut I'm also a bit of a nitpicky asshole (i made the imgur gallery in OP with the examples), because I like quality stuff and want more of it to existSo, first off, top left is simple, and you appear to avoid this most everywhere anyway, but when doing sharp points, such as hair tips, dragging the nodes from the tip makes it easy to avoid the little overlap you have there.Second, bottom left - always try to use as few nodes as possible, again, something you appear to follow mostly everywhere else, but is one thing to never forgetThird, top right, these appear to be some weird mistakes? The shapes just sorta end in random bits which makes the background color shine through, easy to spot by changing the background color back and forth when you think you're done.Fourth, the two bottom right ones, the shoulder frills (or whatever they're called) have the light red color bleed through in the places where, I'm guessing, you copied or traced the first path and created the other from it. Don't do that, especially if you're using inkscape, it has this weird issue with multiple paths sharing the same positions and it renders the color of the one beneath the other. There is a snap to path option in the path tool, which makes dealing with such overlapping curvy shapes much simpler - you only need to adjust one handle to be make the line more or less align with the other curve to make it look smooth.Aside from that, it'd be nice if you could export and upload a higher resolution transparent of her, there's the booru I try to keep up to date
>>2147161I'll work on fixing these and get a transparent uploaded! I saw some of the issues in the face you pointed out already with the different backgrounds, but like I said total newb here and can't quite figure out how to much anchor points in Illustrator, as it's not as intuitive as envisioned it'd be where it's just, click and drag to move them around
>>2147171how to move* anchor points
